Last week Thursday was a big day for you Zoe. It was your very first day of Grade 000, in your new school. You were nervous, you were scared and you begged us not to take you. Your big brown eyes pleaded with me that morning but when I told you about all the colouring in and story books that lined your new classroom I saw a flitter of anticipation. You asked me if you could show your new teacher how well you colour-in and when I nodded up and down, you let me change you. You wore your new pink shoes, your new jeans with butterflies on and you chose to wear your Rockstar t-shirt. Afterall you were a rockstar today. So brave and so cool!
I did take a picture of you just before we left for your new school but I much prefer this one. It epitomizes the bashful, coy, shy and ever so sweet YOU!
“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
